Compressed Engineered flooring is made from compressed and horizontal consisting of three laminated layers. The top and bottom layer is constructed of compressed bamboo material that is glued together with a horizontal bamboo cross section in the middle. This construction forms what is what we know as compressed engineered board. The compressed top and bottom layer is constructed from very hard wearing and durable compressed bamboo. Normally this particular style of board is engineered in such as way the plank is a wider board opposed to the solid compressed bamboo. The engineered compressed bamboo is placed in layers and each layer is turned in a different direction to give it stability and strength. Another difference between these two types of flooring is the price. As engineered flooring is more complex in manufacturing it does make it a more expensive bamboo material than solid bamboo flooring. However, it does not make it any stronger it durable than the solid compressed bamboo. Because of its composite core, engineered is often considered stronger than solid bamboo flooring; however there is much debate and little scientific evidence that this is the case. In the higher humidity areas, both engineered and solid compressed flooring proves to be much more durable, moisture resistant and stable than the Horizontal or Vertical. However, solid bamboo flooring kitchen offers more versatility in choosing finishes and materials, but both styles can also be sanded and refinished like regular hardwood flooring. Most importantly, this type of flooring is considered as a "Green" option because bamboo is a fastest growing plant and it is a sustainable and renewable resource. Moreover, also does not require the harvest of trees. Engineered, on the other hand, makes use of compressed and horizontal.
